Obviously, this is rather concerning the poor little fox! Therefore, in dreams, the spiritual meaning of Fox's tails indicates protection from others.

Over the last two decades, I've dedicated my life to unraveling the spiritual side and psychological side of dreams. I have only dreamed of a fox once, it was roughly five years ago. I recall my body was engulfed in fog, frost covered the landscape and a single fox looked up at me, then sat back down on the tree stump to eat his meal.
Suddenly, the trees whispered to me and the fox rose up into the air and then vanished into the dark of the dawn sky. As you are reading my dream account - maybe you feel as if you are in the dream yourself.
